Our first Xara Cloud update for November brings a host of changes, including a useful addition to our table tool, new creative options for the Smart Layout library, and improved text box handling.
New Row & Column Controls for our Powerful Table Tool
You can now select a block of rows or columns and set them to the same width/height with just one click, a time-saving addition to an already very flexible table tool.
Simply select the columns/rows and click distribute columns or distribute rows
New Creative Possibilities with 'Ungroupable' Smart Layouts
We've made it quick and easy to ungroup the components that make up any Smart Layout, such as Fancy Images or Timelines, opening up the huge Smart Layout library to further editing and increasing your creative choices. Simply select the component and click Ungroup in the context menu.

Text Box Adjustments
A subtle new 'magnetic' behaviour makes it easier to accurately adjust the size of text boxes when your text is too large.
